Each of the bedrooms is situated with either ensuite bathrooms or readily available bathrooms, so there is never any issues when freshening up for the night.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    The property is situated a quick 6-minute drive from the main New Buffalo city center for easy access to shopping as well as the local restaurant scene on the days you decide not to cook. Some favorites are The Stray Dog Bar & Grill for a quick bite or the Bentwood Tavern for your more formal occasions.

    Be sure to explore the areas many hiking trails including Warren Woods State Park, Warren Dunes trail, and Canopy Walkway, all of which sit within minutes of the home. To rent a bike or beach equipment, check out Red Arrow Ride, just a few blocks away. If you'd rather rent a boat or jet ski, Oselka Marina in New Buffalo has you covered. Horseback riding is also available at Stateline Stables, just 15 minutes down the road.

    There are Michigan wineries close by the property that are perfect for sampling away the day. St. Julian Winery, Dablon Winery, Tabor Hills Winery & Restaurant, and Round Barn Winery are both excellent spots to explore the Michigan wine scene. For those that prefer something other than wine, drive 14-minutes over to Journeyman Distillery in Three Oaks where they are serving up house-made spirits and delicious food.

    Any golf enthusiasts staying at the house have a few options to get in a couple of rounds throughout their stay. Chikaming Country Club is a beautifully laid out course that is a 6-minute drive away. Whittaker Woods Golf Club is another local favorite and is a 10-minute drive from the property.

    We rented the house out for 13 of us for a girls/bachelorette weekend. The house was perfect! Plenty of space for everyone, quick walk to the beach, very clean and lots of kitchen amenities. Definitely took advantage of the tennis courts and porch for the great weather we had. Pool was clean and a perfect added bonus for our trip. Would consider renting again any time of year!!!

    The location was good, a short walk to the beach. The property is a little dated but clean. Light switches are a bit confusing but no big deal. Some of the stoves burners did not work but the kitchen overall was a good place to hang out. The screened porch was very nice and adjacent to tennis court. The pool is in the middle of the house and good for multiple families with kids. Overall, good stay.

    The pool is great. Family really enjoyed it. The lower level, tennis court, and screened in porch were great as well. The kitchen needs an overhaul. Some of it needs repair and replacing. The dishwasher did not work when we arrived and took 5 days to replace...not good! And then we had a disagreement about when to install the replacement. They were going to do it at 10PM and night until I refused to let them in. There were ants in the kitchen and other parts of the house which we battled all week long. The bedrooms were OK. I thought the price was high for the value we received.

    Manager's Response:
    Cindy, we're sorry to hear about the issue you experienced during your stay. We understand the homeowner went above and beyond to assist with the dishwasher. They had their maintenance person out within an hour of hearing about the issue and determined a repair was needed. However, since this couldn't happen for two weeks, the owner opted to purchase a brand new dishwasher to ensure you had use of this amenity. We apologize if the timing of the install wasn't to your liking, but the owner didn't hear from you for hours and knew it was important to you to have a dishwasher during your stay. We are confident this was an isolated incident and future guests won't encounter this issue. We look forward to continuing to host satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team

    The house was amazing and had everything we could need. My grandson had a great time in the indoor pool as the weather was less than ideal. We had the whole family of grandmas, adult kids and grandkids and still had plenty of room. The only problem was very low water pressure in the kitchen which did not really affect our enjoyment of the house. Thank you for a fun vacation.

    Perfect trip for our group of three families with kids from 5 to 18 years old. We had amazing weather and were able to take advantage of the tennis court, roasting marshmallows on the fire pit, screened in porch, indoor pool and walks on the beach. We also enjoyed an evening at the Acorn Theater and dinner at Staymaker Restaurant at the Journeyman distillery in Three Oaks.

    Clean, well-maintained inside and out. Spacious, great laundry area, unique fun pool. When camera was left behind Rasa Mitkus, Guest Contact went to bat for us and contacted Stephanie Russell, Cleaning Rep, who had turned in the camera, and it was promptly mailed back to us. We are so grateful for their integrity and honesty. Rasa had also helped us upon arrival with minor questions. We were very pleased with all the amenities of this offering. We enjoyed dinners at Song Asian Cuisine and Harbor House. Mostly we bonded using all this place had: pool table, firepit for making Smores, blowing hugh bubble creations on the tennis courts, swimming in the warm pool.

    My friends and I (16 women total) spent the wknd here to celebrate my 40th bday and it was perfect! The layout of the house is very conducive to a large group being able to socialize and hang out together. The pool was fantastic (could have been a tad warmer) and several people enjoyed the sauna. Hot water for showers was a bit of an issue after a friend filled the large tub with hot water for a bubble bath. It took several hours before hot water was available again for showers, so watch out for that. Beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone to be together when we wanted to be and have personal time away from the group if we needed it. Owners were very generous and accommodating with our requests and Evolve was very responsive and helpful. All of my guests were pleased and mentioned wanting to rent the house in the future for family vacations. It was a great weekend at a great house! Thank you very much!

    Will never deal with Evolve Again

    The listing I reviewed said one night was free when you booked during the week. When I inquired about the deal, I was told the owner refused to honor it because it was a holiday week, but there was no such disclaimer on the listing. Even after I complained they never changed the listing. Renter beware! There was also a piece of trim hanging from one of the skylights immediately over the only place to sit on the pool decking. We asked that it be removed, but no one came. The agent told me they already knew about the problem but still hadn't fixed it. The oven door also doesn't close all the way, so the handle of the adjacent cupboard gets very hot when the oven is on. House is okay, but needs to be updated and needs some serious TLC.

    We had stayed at Asolare a few years ago and had a good experience. Unfortunately that wasn't the case this time. There were issues from the moment we arrived. Pool pump was broken (this was the only thing which was fixed before we left!), several lights not working, kitchen cabinets broken and hanging on by 1hinge. However, the biggest disappointment for our adult sons and grandchildren was the fact we had NO TV or WiFi service for the entire time we stayed here! We reported this immediately but not able to have a tech come. We felt this should have been addressed prior to our arrival. When it finally wasn't repaired by College football Saturday my husband drove to a hardware store and paid $50 to get an antenna so the guys could watch the games. Not to be completely negative, the home was spacious, the kids enjoyed the pool table in the basement and the tennis courts outside. Unless there are improvements made to this home we will NOT be renting this again and would recommend anyone looking to book it...request that these things be checked prior to your stay.

    Manager's Response:
    Jane, it's great to hear your family enjoyed most of your stay, but we are sorry certain aspects didn't meet your expectations this time. We understand the homeowners were kind enough to allow your family to check-in early without any charge. Once the issues you mentioned were reported, they sent maintenance to the house to remedy this issues you encountered. The homeowners also called the pool guy about the outage of the pump and he fixed it within a couple of hours. While cable outages are out of anyone's control, they did generously arrange for a complimentary late check-out. While Comcast tried to fix the issue over the phone, we regret that it was not able to be fixed during your stay. The homeowners do all they can to ensure guests have the optimal stay, and we look forward to Asolare continuing to provide memories for guests who come to visit. Thank you for your feedback.

    This was a beautiful space for hosting our ladies weekend getaway. It is in a great location that was perfect for what we were looking for (wine tasting, with a quiet neighborhood to return to). There were some issues with cleanliness of the home, though I do believe these could be resolved with just a little TLC. It is also worth noting that the heated pool is not very warm, just to have a heads up on expectations. Overall, I am still very glad that we stayed here. There was plenty of space for the 12 of us, and it is a great house for hosting a small get-together.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this home with 7 adults, one toddler and one dog. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is very well furnished and the grill is great. There are lots of towels, beach towels, noodles, beach chairs and many other amenities. We loved the pool and the large screened in porch. We never made it to the bottom level gameroom which looked nice. It's a quick walk to Gordon Beach which is very nice and easily accessible for all ages (we were age 2-88). The tennis court was a great place for our two year old to run around on. We had an issue upon check in but it was quickly resolved so I kept the rating 5 star. Stephanie and her cleaning crew are awesome!! We ate all our meals at the house and enjoyed the screened porch for comfortable eating. There's a small, nearby grocery store within walking distance if you forget something. We loved the area and everyone wants to return!

    I loved this home! My guests and I had a wonderful girls weekend here! The pool was amazing, as well as the sauna! It was rainy so we did not use the fire pit or the tennis court. Everything was very nice and very clean. Very spacious! Plenty of towels & linen! Also very happy to see extra chairs and tennis equipment were available. Nothing was lacking and the host was very responsive to questions theoughout the weekend. Small things that did not impact our fun: We were never able to connect the stereo system; however, the host really tried with emails, texts, & phone calls. The directions in the drawer do not correspond with the current system. Also, each letout sofa has a different twist - we figured it out, but a direction card would be nice. And the first bedroom left of the door has a double bed and a trundle pull out to make a second bed (not 3 beds as listed). I can truly say this was my best Airbnb rental ever! And we are planning to return here!
